Sorry , I have been MIA. :) My BFF came from Florida so I took a few weeks off. One to run around with her, and our Hubby's, all over Vegas. And one week to recover ! I have been pretty much in bed since they left. It was SO worth it though :) I have LOTS of pictures today. My third swap partner SPOILED me !! Miss Denise at Pink Pomegranate. I just now opened her package and had to put everything out that she sent me. Oh My Word !!! She sent me this AWESOMELY Beautiful Robins egg with the Most gorgeous soft aqua millinery on it. I love this and it will be gracing my dining table year round. I put it on a crystal base, isn't it gorgeous ?? She also sent me this way sweet Bunny ! Eeek, Sweet !! :)
She also sent me this sweet Kissing Bunnies banner :)
And more goodies :)
This made me cry. This is probably one of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever received. And old 1800's Bible. The family documented births in the front of the Old Testament and the New. Martha E. ? was Borned ( hee hee :) ) March 15, 1859
There was even more, but I happily dispersed it throughout the house to enjoy :)
Sweet Deb sent me this yummy aqua basket filled with sweetness :) Love the vintage bunny on the front and the pretty pink flowers :) Isn't this sweet ??
All of this was inside the basket, Vintage postcards ( the one on the left is on my dining table with my pretty egg : ), a sweet Lamb cookie cutter, Spring Swankie Hankies :), vintage cupcake bunny topper, and a lamb and duck figurine :)Thank you Deb, you are always such a sweetheart, I truly cherish all of this sweetness :)
Then from Karen, my other BFF :) a Hostess/Easter surprise !!A Y'uge Vintage baby planter and goodies ! My Hubby and I always say Yuuuuuge, instead of Huge. I guess it is from watching My Cousin Vinny too many times :) Anyhoo, Look at this sweet planter !! I thought it was a cookie jar, lol !! :) Oh my gosh, it is truly the cutest ! Love this hanging piece. It has such pretty ribbon embroidery on it :) I hung it in the Living room :)And these bunnies are so sweet, I tucked one into one of my vintage cups. He can stay there year round as well :)
My friend from Florida surprised me with this vase !! Naughty girl !!!!! I SO love it, and will treasure it and the day we were SO lucky to go antiquing together, like we have talked about for years online. :) I cant tell you how much I enjoyed meeting her in person, ( although, it was just like we had know each other forever :) ) Dont let anyone tell you that Online friends are Virtual only, they are TRUE friends :)
We giggled like school girls all week and our Hubbies hit it off as well. We ate too much, walked too much, saw EVERYTHING that had Bling, Rhinestones, Crystals and Jewels on it, lol !! We even went to the famous "Pawn Shop" frome the show "Pawn Stars" on the History Channel, so we could meet "Old Man" :)
